Senior Jasmine Chaney had a hand in four victories for the women and rookie Ryan Milus was in on three as the duo helped their respective Arizona State University track and field teams to sweeps of rivals Arizona and Northern Arizona on Saturday night at Sun Angel Stadium in Tempe. In all, the Sun Devils combined to win 22 events (of 38 contested), including 12 by the women and 10 by the men, as ASU swept its intrastate rivals for the first time since 2009.

In the women's standings, No. 10 ASU won a Top 10 battle by outscoring No. 7 UA, 104.5-94.5, while also defeating NAU, 138-52. On the men's side, the No. 25 Sun Devils also scored an upset as they took down the No. 9 Wildcats, 113-79, while also knocking off the Lumberjacks, 127-60. UA defeated NAU in both duals, winning 126-57 in the women's standings and 105-68 on the men's. ASU has now swept UA eight times in the series and has swept NAU 14 times in a row (18 overall). The Sun Devil men are 26-23 all-time against UA and 29-5 against NAU while the women hold advantages of 15-12 over the Wildcats and 23-2 over the Lumberjacks.

For the women, the night once again belonged to Chaney, who ran in her final home meet for the Sun Devils and collected four wins, including both hurdle races and anchoring both relays. The Tempe McClintock product won the 100m hurdles in 13.33, the second-fastest in the history of the Dual, while winning the 400m hurdles in 57.59, the third-fastest in Double Dual history. At the start of the day, she joined with Asia Gooden, Kayla Sanchez and Alycia Herring to run 44.46 to win the 4x100m relay with the ninth-best mark in school history and third-best in Dual history before closing the night with a come-from-behind victory over UA in the 4x400m relay in 3:35.55. The relay, made up of Herring, Keia Pinnick, Sanchez and Chaney, clocked the second-best time in Dual history.

The women's sprints didn't stop there as they also won the 100m, 200m and 400m individual events as well. Sanchez captured the 100m dash in 11.75, which was her third win of the evening; Herring took the 200m title in 24.45 for her third win of the day; and Pinnick was the winner in the quarter at 55.20 for her second title. In the field, Christabel Nettey also won multiple times as she swept the long jump (6.37m/20-10.75) and triple jump (12.19m/40-00.00). The remaining women's wins came from Shaylah Simpson in the pole vault (3.83m/12-06.75); Anna Jelmini in the discus (59.35m/194-9); and Cj Navarro in the hammer (57.40m/188-4). Jelmini's mark stands as the meet record while Nettey's marks are fourth and 10th-best in Dual history, respectively, and Simpson is now ninth.

On the men's side, Milus again had the speed as he was in on a trio of wins by sweeping the 100m and 200m dashes for the second week in a row and bringing home the baton in the 4x100m victory. Individually, Milus clocked in at 10.27 to win the 100m dash, posting the second-best time in Dual history and the seventh-best time in ASU history, before running 21.03 to take the 200m dash. He opened the day with Daniel Auberry, Allante Battle and Justin Freeman to run 40.12 and take the 4x100m relay title.

Battle also was a part of another win as he joined John Kline, Kelsey Caesar and William Henry to run 3:09.85 and take the 4x400m relay title. Caeser, earlier in the day, also won the 400m dash in 46.29, just edging out Henry, who was second in 46.62. The final win on the track for the Sun Devil men came in the 110m hurdles as decathlete Jeremy Marcinko won in 15.54.

In the field, the Sun Devils won four events. Senior Corey Phallen won the pole vault in his final home appearance with a clearance of 5.06m (16-07.25) while Chris Benard was victorious in the triple jump with a leap of 14.99m (49-02.25). In the the throws, Jordan Clarke captured the shot put with his toss of 18.65m (61-02.25), the 10th-best in Dual history, while Marc Peck won the javelin with a heave of 64.29m (210-11).

Overall, ASU swept eight events, including six in the sprints and two in the field. On the track, Sun Devil athletes won the men's and women's races at 100m, 200m, 400m, 4x100m, 4x400m and in the high hurdles (100m for wome and 110m for men). In the field, the Sun Devil swepts came in the pole vault and triple jump.

Next week, several Sun Devils will travel to Tucson to open the championship portion of the season as they will compete in the women's heptathlon and men's decathlon to open the Pac-10 Championships on Friday and Saturday. One week after, the remaining events of the Championship will also be held in Tucson.
